"Of Cockroaches and Trees: The Outlook for Ash in Southeastern Michigan in the Aftermath of Emerald Ash Borer" speaker program is being held on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017 at ROMS. Join Dr. Dan Kashian, Associate Professor at Wayne State University, for a look at Emerald ash borer 15 years after its introduction and devastation of the ash tree in our forests and yards. Emerald ash borer (EAB) has killed millions of trees near its introduction point in southeastern Michigan, and many have predicted the elimination of ash from the landscape. Almost 15 years after the introduction of EAB, however, we still find ash in the "aftermath" forests, as surviving trees and sprouts, both of which are producing an abundance of seed and new ash seedlings. With EAB still present at low populations in the area, is ash resilient enough to survive this devastating invasive species?
